Just Breathe

It’s been a rough few months.  This morning I was telling Rick that I would love to be walking on an isolated path, surrounded by lush greenery, with nothing but the sounds of the birds and perhaps a small stream nearby.  No traffic noises, no phones, no demands, no stress, just the peaceful quiet of nature.  I live in the big city, work full time, and an escape such as this sounds perfect.

In that moment, I realized – I need a break.  So, I’m planning one. I am going to get away in the next few weeks.  It won’t be the lush green forest, but it will give me a few days to unwind, relax….and just breathe.
